Star Wars Battlefront Beta Announced



Prior to its November release, Disney and Electronic Arts have announced Star Wars Battlefront Beta will launch in October for PS4, Xbox One, and on Origin for PC.

Gamers will be able to play the Walker Assault on Hoth, a massive 40-player battle that will also give gamers a chance to play as either Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, and the Survival Mission on Tatooine, where two Rebels must find a way to combat waves of Imperial forces. In addition to the two battle simulations will be a new mode appropriately named “Drop Zone.” More details will be announced soon.

A Star Wars Battlefront Companion mobile experience has also been announced which is a strategic card game Base Command, and will allow both Rebel and Imperial players to multitask and receive various notifications while playing Star Wars Battlefront. The Star Wars Battlefront Companion will be available in the Apple App Store and Google Play prior to the release of Star Wars Battlefront on November 17.

You can pre-order Star Wars Battlefront and be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim.
